Placed In Cuffs For Knifing Rival In Rockaway
An extramarital affair provoked a Richmond Hill bus driver to stab a man last Tuesday, Nov. 4, following a confrontation at an Arverne intersection, law enforcement sources stated.
According to the criminal complaint from Queens County District Attorney Richard A. Brown, the incident erupted after Ephraim Henry, 30, encountered the victim–who he believes is dating his wife–near Beach 67th Street and Beach Channel Drive while he completed his shift en route to the Far Rockaway bus depot.
When Henry saw the victim driving a Honda, both men came to a stop, and they began to argue and fight, Brown said. Henry then got off the bus and stabbed the victim in the arm, law enforcement sources stated.
The victim was transported to a nearby hospital after suffering nerve and muscle damage that required surgery, it was noted.
Henry was arraigned before Queens Criminal Court Judge Ernest Hart on charges of first- and second-degree assault and fourthdegree criminal possession of a weapon on Wednesday, Nov. 5, Brown stated. He was held on $50,000 bail and ordered to return to court on Nov. 19, it was noted.
Henry faces up to 25 to years in prison if convicted, according to the DA.
